The Oakland Raiders trail the New Orleans Saint at halftime by a score of 21-7.

The Saints jumped out to an early 14-0 first quarter lead following a one yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Jimmy Graham and a 55 yard interception return by cornerback Malcolm Jenkins.

With 4:10 remaining in the second quarter, the Raiders were able to put some points on the board thanks to a one yard touchdown strike to tight end Brandon Myers. That play capped off an 81-yard drive that helped bring Oakland to within seven.

The Saints extended their lead back to 14 at the conclusion of the half on a 38 yard touchdown from Brees to wide receiver Lance Moore. Thus far, the Raiders have struggled to keep Brees in check, as he has thrown for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Palmer, meanwhile, is 10-18 for 141 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Running back Marcel Reese has accumulated 150 yards of total offense for the Raiders.
